Our Alligator leather is a chrome-tanned leather from Heng Long tannery in Singapore. Our Alligator leather is 100% sustainably and ethically sourced, imported with a CITES permit. Our Alligator leather watch straps works particularly well with a dress watch. Alligator leather has nice rectangular scales, making them perfect for a watch strap. All our alligator leather hides are sourced from sustainable and ethical farms in the United States. The hides are then sent to Singapore to be tanned by the renowned tannery, Heng Long.

The Gold Standard for Leather Watch Straps

All of our watch straps are entirely handmade, utilising traditional leathercrafting techniques. They are cut, saddle stitched and edge painted by hand to ensure your straps are durable and develop character with wear. All of our straps are lined with Zermatt leather, a hypoallergenic and water-resistant french calf leather. As all our leathers are full-grain leathers, the natural characteristics of the leather will show and may vary across straps.

Hypoallergenic Calfskin Lining

In order to provide a luxurious feel, the straps are lined with Zermatt calfskin leather from Haas Tannery. This premium material is specially developed for use as a lining material and offers exceptional softness and comfort. It is also water and sweat-resistant, making it ideal for use in hot and humid climates.

Fine Hand Stitching

Our made-to-order straps showcase a fine hand-stitching density. With a spacing of 2.4mm per stitch, this creates a very refined look. Should you wish to go for a more rugged look, we also offer thicker thread and wider density stitching at 2.7mm and 3.0mm.

Strap Thickness

Our standard unpadded strap thickness is 2.2mm and padded strap thickness tapers from 4.5mm to 2.2mm. We are able to customise the thickness of the strap accordingly.

316L Stainless Steel Buckle

Our straps comes installed with a 316L stainless steel buckle which is engraved with our Artisan Straps logo. This buckle comes with drilled lug holes allowing for easy removal without damaging the strap.

Spring Bars

Choose between regular spring bars, quick-release spring bars or no spring bars. While quick-release spring bars are our preference as we love to change straps, we also understand it's not everyones cup of tea!

Smooth & Polished Edges

The edges of our straps are finished with Italian edge paint - sealing the raw edges from wear and tear. With over 5 layers of edge paint applied and rigorous sanding in between, our straps exhibit a beautiful smooth edge.
